rodin museum
    The Musée Rodin is housed in a beautiful eighteenth-century mansion, wich the sculptor leased from the state in retourn for the gift of all his work at his death. In the garden tou'll find major works like the Burghers of Calais, Balzac, the Thinker and the unfinished Gates to Hell, inspired by Dante's vision of hell in his Divine Comedy. Indoors are studies and smaller works like The Kiss : the two lovers were originally meant to represent Paolo and Francesca and intented to feature in the gates to Hell piece. Other notable works can be found inside, included The Hand of God (or the Creation), seemingly in the process of taking shape, studies for his larger works and a whole room devoted to Camille Claudel, Rodin's pupil, model and lover. Among her pieces is a bust of Rodin himself, Claudel's perception of her teacher was so akin to Rodin's own that he regarded it as a self-portrait.
